Back From Myrtle Beach!

Happy Sunday!  I'm back from my family vacation in Myrtle Beach and I wanted to share my week with you!

Our trip started out with rain and clouds due to a tropical storm, but after Chantal hit the road, we had gorgeous, sunny weather!  Our suite was on the 15th floor, and this is the view we had:
I could live there!  MB is like my home away from home!  We've vacationed there at least a dozen times!

One night, we had a photo shoot on the beach:
Up top, my hubby and I took silly selfies :)  Down below, my sister {aka, my brother's girlfriend} and I channelled our inner Griffo with a jumping pic, and then we grabbed my brother and the hubs for a couples' shot!

Here's a photo of the best parents ever:
I loved spending time with them last week!!

Here are some randoms from the trip:
Clockwise:  All 12 of us piled into the elevator and took a mirror pic; my brother and his girlfriend; the hubs and I on the balcony; the girls and our bright golf balls.

Matt and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary on the 17th:
We got all dressed up and went out to eat with everyone!  {PS: Do you notice a picture trend?!  I stand on the left and my hand is always on my hip!! Ha!}

Of course, I did some shopping!  This isn't even half:
Clockwise:  My husband says I am a Grumposaur so he bought me the shirt, lol; I am not too old for a stuffed crab; a hot pink sweatshirt for cold NJ days;  had to add to my magnet collection.

And what kind of teacher would I be if I went on vacation and didn't buy school supplies?!  Yep, I dragged whoever would go with me to Walmart to snag some deals:
I picked up blue and green plastic folders, new scissors to match my classroom colors {my old ones have had it after five years}, neon file folders {so I can do some summer organizing}, and Sharpie highlighters... all on sale, of course!

Well I hope you enjoyed hearing about my vacation even though it had *almost* nothing to do with teaching!  I'm off to catch up on blog stalking and checking emails!!  Talk soon! :)

Looks like you had a fantastic vacation! You're view looks amazing! I also LOVE those neon file folders from Wal-Mart! I saw them and wondered if I really needed them. After seeing them multiple times on Instagram, I've decided I think I do REALLY need them!!

Looks like you all a great time! We spent a week in MB at the beginning of the month. We had lots of rain that week. But, at least we were at the beach!

It looks like you had a great time. I, always, take two suitcases on vacation - one for clothes and the other for all the teachy stuff I buy. It is a sickness.

Your trip looks so fun :) And I plan on dragging my family school supply shopping when we head to the beach. New stores to conquer, of course! :)

Myrtle Beach is the place to be. Just got back yesterday. I did not do any school shopping because once I start I can't stop. I did buy clothes for my 4 and 6 year old foster kids. They were the reason for the best beach trip ever. Nothing like seeing old things through the eyes of a child. Everything is new. Now it is time to start thinking about the new school year. I only have 2 weeks until I go back and the summer has already flown by.
